Pittsburgh Web DesignPittsburgh Web Design

I have been working with websites for most of my life, but have only been getting compensated for it since 2004. I've been fortunate enough to be a part of web design and development projects for many great businesses ranging from small Pittsburgh based mom-and-pop shops to Fortune 500 companies.

Good web design isn't about fancy gadgets, vanilla stock photography or trendy fads. It's about communication and building brand integrity. Thus, I take a fully immersive approach to your online presence by creating a clean and easy to use website, optimizing your website for search engines, taking professional photos of your business, managing your social media, overseeing email marketing campaigns, creating an e-commerce shopping cart to sell your product, and branding your company in a truly unique way.

Drew Nelson BioDrew Nelson Bio

I'm based in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and graduated from Saint Vincent College with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Information Technology. I would like to think of myself as both left and right brained. I appreciate the complexity of well written code behind the scenes, as well as the elements that go into designing an aesthetically pleasing and easy to use website.

Apart from web design, I like traveling, playing soccer & baseball, trying food I can't pronounce, and rambling about how much I love brewing and drinking craft beer.

Vision Creative Solutions

A portfolio project I worked on for my former employer Vision Creative Solutions. I was able to get pretty creative with this one, and put a lot of slick jQuery functionality into the site. The site was designed and built from scratch using PHP, Flash Animation, CSS, and HTML5.



Vintage Estate Wine and Beer

I always refer to Vintage Estate Beer and Wine as "My happy place." They were named the Best Beer Retailer in the world in 2010 by Ratebeer.com. Had a great time designing this website, and became friends with the owners in the process. All of the photography on the site was taken by me. I also created the site for their annual beerfest in Boardman, OH, The Big Tap In.




Custom WordPress site. I was excited to work on this site as it is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. If you go be sure to get the scallops, or gnocci!



West Penn Fair Housing

Built from scratch using WordPress. West Penn Rural Fair Housing, in close collaboration with its partners, provides the first and only coordinated effort in the 24 county region of Western Pennsylvania to affirmatively promote – through testing and legal advice, counsel and representation – the rights of the protected classes delineated in the Fair Housing Act.



mcanney esposito

Built from scratch using WordPress Content Management System. McAnney ♦ Esposito brings a wealth of resources, knowledge and industry experience to any attorney seeking to find permanent employment.



Embroidery Etc

Embroidery Etc. is a full service embroidery, screen printing and apparel shop in the south side of Pittsburgh. Did I mention my mom owns this business? This may or may not have been a factor in me getting a deal for redesigning this site.



Digital Photography started off as a hobby for me, but recently I have been taking it a bit more seriously. I mostly take shoot weddings, animals, craft beer, people, and Pittsburgh's amazing skyline. I actually have a separate site with all my photography over at Drew Nelson Photography
